Chorus for Education
A Collaboration Tool that Does More—Designed for Today’s Classroom
Is your classroom technology slowing down your lessons and making your students lose interest? Difficulty connecting, sharing, and controlling screens used to be standard. Not anymore.
Chorus is the simple, all-in-one classroom solution that transforms your interactive panel into a powerful hub for collaboration and video conferencing. Chorus takes all of the moving parts that can make teamwork feel tedious and helps them work in concert—connecting devices, applications, and browsers so teachers and students can easily share ideas and content. And since our enterprise-level collaboration software is the same solution used by corporations, integrating Chorus into your lessons truly trains and prepares students for today’s work environment.
Connect to your favorite video conferencing tool, access a webcam, pull up an infinite whiteboard for whole class brainstorming sessions, open and navigate in multiple browsers, and stream content to the interactive panel from multiple devices at once. All without ever leaving the shared workspace.
Features and Benefits
Truly open architecture supports all platforms, devices, and applications to fit into any classroom configuration. Whether you work in a one-to-one district, use Google Chromebooks, have an Apple classroom, or allow students to bring their own devices, Chorus simplifies connectivity.
Intuitive, Universal User Interface
Schools and districts can standardize their collaboration and lesson-planning process, providing a uniform classroom experience across all devices: PC, MAC, Android, iOS, Linux.
No information is stored on the panel itself. Presentations can be streamed on the panel through a password protected wireless connection so information stays in the proper hands.
Easy Content Sharing
Send out a partial or full canvas to students after the lesson. Individual presentation pieces can be saved and printed, emailed to students and teachers directly from the platform, or stored in the cloud or on the network drive.
Save your session with an optional password to continue your meeting at a later date. Easily recall your sessions from where you left off.
Full Annotation Toolset
Mark up your lesson, presentation, design, or other document directly on the panel and easily save annotations.
Built-in Ideation Tools
Chorus includes sticky notes, sketch tools, browsers, pan and zoom tools, integrated plug-ins for common video conferencing apps, and more.
No Licenses for Additional Users
Chorus is an affordable option compared to other collaboration platforms. After you purchase the initial add on application for the panel, no additional licenses are required for collaborators.
No more running back to your computer mid-lesson to pull up files or open a new browser. Chorus lets you access your Connected PC or Mac directly from the Panel.
Chorus makes it easy to flip your classroom. Control your computer remotely or allow students to take control of the session. Chorus offers flexibility for truly collaborative learning.
US-based support services and automatic updates as well as expert installation assistance.
